Wrong Address 

Louis S. Ashman, '08, writes in to say 
that the Alumni News made an error in 
announcing that his law office is located at 
211 East Fayette Street. Mr. Ashman is 
located at 18 East Lexington Street, where 
he moved last January. Mr. Ashman is 
well known to Maryland alumni for the 
free scholarships which he has been do- 
nating to the University for more than 
20 years and for his recent sociological 
novel, Lawyer Escape and Company. 


Many Students Receive 
Awards At Graduation 

As part of Commencement Week at 
the University, a special Class Night pro- 
gram was held on the campus at which 
time a number of awards were presented to 
outstanding students. 

The Service Award, offered by the staff 
of the Dean of Women in recognition of 
her outstanding service, of her excellent 
leadership, of her success in bringing about 
a closer relationship among all students by 
fostering activities in which all would par- 
ticipate was made to Bertha Ann Patterson, 
of Towson, Md. 

The Delta Delta Delta Sorority medal, of- 
fered to the sophomore girl who entered the 
University of Maryland as a freshman with- 
in three years after graduation from high 
school, and who made the highest schol- 
astic average during the first three semes- 
ters was presented to Margaret Ruth 
Bcattie. of Beltsville, Md. 

The Omicron Nu Sorority medal, offered 

to the freshman girl in the College of 

Home Economics who made the highest 

scholastic average during the 'first semester

Nearly 300 students from College Park 
and the Baltimore Schools of the Univer- 
sity received their diplomas at Commence- 
ment Exercises held in Ritchie Coliseum at 
11 A. M. on May 29. The main address was 
delivered by Senator George L. Radcliffc 
of Maryland who was also awarded the 
honorary degree of doctor of laws by Pres 
ident Byrd. 

975 Students Graduate 

The total number of students graclu 
ated this spring was considerably less than 
last year because many students have taken 
advantage of the accelerated program of- 
fered by the University and graduated at 
varied times during the year. For example, 
more than 300 students received their 
diplomas at the first midwinter graduation 
held last February and President Byrd an- 
nounced that 975 students had received 
degrees from the University of Maryland 
during the last 12 months. 

The Commencement Week program at 
College Park began on Sunday, May 23. 
when baccalaureate services were held at 
St. Andrew's Episcopal Church. This was 
preceded at 8:45 A. M. by a breakfast 
given by Dean Adele Stamp for all women 
graduates in the University Dining Hall. 
At 5 P. M., on the same day, there was 
a tea for the Home Economics seniors 
given by Dean Marie Mount of the Col- 
lege of Home Economics. Other events 
during the week included the Senior Class 
picnic, a Junior-Senior German, Class 
Night program, banquet, and Commence- 
ment Ball. 

Governor Speaks 

Other speakers included His Excellency 
Governor Herbert R. O'Conor of Mary- 
land and the Honorable Theodore R. Mc- 
Keldin, newly elected Mayor of the City of 
Baltimore and an alumnus of the Law 
School. Military certificates were presented 
to 174 junior and senior members of the 
Reserve Officers Training Corps by Colo- 
nel Robt. E. Wysor, Jr., professor of Mili- 
tary Science and Tactics at the University. 

Invocation was given by the Rev. Na- 
thaniel C. Action of St. Andrew's Church, 
College Park, and Benediction was sung by 
Mr. Justin Lawrie of Silver Spring. Music 
for the occasion was provided by the Uni- 
versity orchestra and band. 

In his address to the departing Seniors, 
Senator Radcliffe touched upon many of 
our present-day problems and those that 
will face the world after the war. 

In speaking ol those conditions he said: 

"We could go forward with less uncei 

tainty and difficulty if we could consider 
our problems merely nationalistic and not 
enmeshed as part of the cares and tribula 
tions of the world. Numerically speaking, 
never in history has the world been in such 
a state of upheaval and demoralization as 
will be the case when peace comes back. 
The cataclysm following the fall of the 
Roman Empire, the Plague of the Black 
Death, carrying off nearly one half of the 
population of Europe were world-shaking 
events. Now two billions of people of even 
nook and corner of the earth will be vitally 
affected this time. Economic feuds, violent 
nations hatreds, myriads of clashing spirits 
— all must be dealt with. . . . 

Cannot Be Isolationists 
"Is it possible that there is anyone so 
blind as to what is now happening as to 
believe that we can shape our course and 
control our own destiny, indifferent as to 
what goes on in the rest of the world? We 
could never, as isolationists, reach and re- 
turn to a status of economic, industrial and 
financial stability in a world so upset, 
topsy-turvy and burdened with age-long 
jealousies and animosities. Quick may be 
the voice to say, let us attend to our own 
knitting. So we will, in a sense, but the 
fabric of other peoples' lives we must re-

To Train Specialists 

The \iinv Specialized Training Program 
was established to meet the needs of 
skilled specialists in certain fields in the 
\iniv and as the \rmy lacked the facilities 
for this training it has called upon the 
colleges of the Nation to assist and to 
operate in the program. All trainees are 
enlisted men and are subject to all phases 
of military discipline. Their status is dif- 
ferent from enlisted men only in the fact they have been selected for special 
training and arc considered as potential 
officer candidates. 

Colonel Robert F. Wysor, Professoi of 
Military Science and Tactics at the Univer- 
sity, will be commandant of the new unit 
which has been designated by the \\ ai 1 )c 
partment as the 2510th Service Unit i V

Majosi QeH&tal Alaan G. QilUm 

Major General Alvan C. Gillem, Pro- 
fessor of Military Science and Tactics at 
the University of Maryland from 1930 to 
1935 and now chief of the armored forces 
of the United States, at one time thought 
a tank wasn't worth a fraction of its weight 
in infantrv. 

This sidelight on the former Maryland 
military department head was contributed 
by President Byrd in an article which ap- 
peared in a recent issue of the Baltimore 
Sun. The article states in part that "the 
General was' very outspoken m his con- 
tention that tanks were too slow and cum 
bcrsome to strike effective blows. He con- 
tended consistently that nothing could 
match the fluid adaptability of infantry, 
and that an army that fought mostly on 
foot was to be preferred to any other. 

Now 54 Years of Age 
"General Gillem is now an all-out tank 
enthusiast, of course, and the transition 
is a commentary on the impressiveness of 

the tactics of modem warfare. Now ^4. 
he was converted after more than twenty 
five years of service in the infantry. \ na 
tive of Nashville. Tcnn.. he attended the 
University of Arizona and the University 
of the South, and after a brief stmt as an 
engineer m Mexico, enlisted as a private 
in an infantry unit in January, 1910. 

"He was appointed a second lieutenant 

of infantrv in February, l ( )ll. received his 
captaincy in May, 191". and became a ma 
jor in the Regular Army on July 1. 1920. 
During the first \\ orld War, he was com- 
missioned as a temporary major in June,

Senator Radcliffe Speaks 

(Continued from Page 3) 
gard. Today no single mortal or combina 
tion of them can settle such international 
problems. They can visualize them onl\ 
vaguely, subject to lights and shadows evei 
shifting. True, we must serve our United 
States first, but we can do so successfully, 
only if we help to work out satisfactorily 
certain outside readjustments. . . . 

"We are hoping that when the end of 
this war docs come, that militarism in the 
guise of assaults against the peace and in 
dependence of the world will not again 
arise to ham and to torture the world. 
The Axis Powers which have idealized 
force have assumed that force, as exercised 
by them, would prevail over all other na- 
tions. No one is going to glorify brute force, 
if he expects to be licked each time he 
resorts to it, but we must take no unnec- 
essary chances of militarism being merely 
stunned and not put to death. How are we 
going to hold in check the lawless ele- 
ments which have brought unspeakable 
tragedy to the world? Will it be by an in- 
ternational army and navy, an interna- 
tional police or a super-government, so 
set up as to be effective, and yet not in- 
fringe upon the sovereignties of nations? 
What would be the characteristics of such 
a government? We are familiar with the 
view that there can be no such a status as 
a divided sovereignty; that sovereignty in 
its essential essence involves and requires 
indivisibility. \\ ill some modification be 
made to that principle in hopes that world 
stability and peace can be assured? . . . 
Must Face Issue 

"Without letting down an iota in our 
war effort, but rather by increasing its mo- 
mentum, we must devote ourselves zeal- 
ously and vigorously to the study of these 
post-war problems. We must begin to have 
some concrete views in our minds as to pos- 
sible solutions of post-war problems of 
trade, finance and government. But first 
we must settle now, or very soon, how far 
we arc willing to go in setting up inter- 
national police systems or arbitration tri- 
bunals with some real power behind them. 
\\ c should now have ideas fairly definite 
of some general characteristics of such 
plans, probably an alternative now in 
mind. . . . 

"I do not favor at this time interna- 
tional conferences to settle upon these 
plans, or probablv even to discuss them 
concretely. Since we do not know when 
the war will end. we cannot forecast what 
will be world conditions when the war is 
over. Such conferences would probably 
lead to grave controversies, to fretting away 
of our war efforts, and possibly to serious 
friction and to grave discord. But inter-

Doris Mae Thompson 
Named "Miss Maryland" 

Doris Mae Thompson, of Catonsville. 
Md.. was named this year's '"Miss Mary 
land" in the annual beauty contest run by 
the Maryland student year book. The Ter- 
rapin, which made its appearance on the 
campus on May 24. 

Edith Dunford, of Riverdale. Md.; Betty 
Wascher, of Englcwood, N. J.; Nettie Gar- 
man, of Washington, D. C and Man.- D. 
Harris, of Bel Air, Md.. runners-up to Miss 
Thompson in the contest, were named as 
her court. 

Selection of '"Miss Maryland" was made 
this year by the staff of the Lucky Bag, 
student annual of the United States Naval 
Academy at Annapolis. It has long been a 
tradition at the University to have "Miss 
Maryland" picked by some prominent art- 
ist or motion-picture star, but it was felt 
this year that it would be much more ap- 
propriate to have some branch of the serv- 
ice make the selection. The Lucky Bag 
staff made its selection from 12 finalists 
after the student both of the University 
had voted on 26 candidates representing 
various coed groups at College Park. 

Miss Thompson is a graduate of Ca- 
tonsville High School and is a senior in 
the practical arts curriculum of the Col- 
lege of 1 lomc Economics. She is a bru- 
nette, popular in campus affairs and pres- 
ident of Alpha Omicron Pi Sorority. Win- 
ning beauty contests is not new to her as 
she reigned as the Queen of a Livestock 
Eield Day at the Univcrsitv in her fresh- 
man year and last vcar was runner-up to 
"Miss Maryland" in the beauty contest 
conducted by the 1°42 Terrapin.

Old Line Athletic Contributions 

Old Liners Wind-Up 
Great Lacrosse Season 

By this time most readers of the \i OMNI 
News know that the Old Line lacrosse 
team did not win the national champion- 
ship but they also know that the Maryland 
team mule an outstanding record and was 
one of the greatest teams in the history 
of the sport at College Park. 

Get Honorable Mention 

[Tie race for the national championship 
was quite a see-saw proposition all season 
and finally settled into a duel between 
Maryland, Navy, Army, and Johns Hopkins. 
Maryland put up a magnificent battle on 
\l.i\ ZZiul to eliminate Johns Hopkins, 
their age old rivals, by the score of 5 to 4. 
Navj came right back a week later to make 
her hitl for national honors by defeating 
\iiny. However, Navy had defeated Mary- 
land 9 to 8 in an early game and the Win- 
gate Tropin, symbolic of the national col- 
li giate championship was awarded to them 
earlj in June. Maryland and Stevens Insti- 
tute were given honorable mentions. 

Although All-American ratings have not 
been handed out as this issue of the News 
goes to press, three Old Line players have 
been named on the All-State lacrosse team. 
These were Jack Dittmar, who did stellar 
work through the season at cover point; 
Lloyd Malloncc, who played at center; and 
Jack Hoyert, out home. Hoyert and Ditt- 
mar are being spoken of as strong candi- 
dates for All-American honors. 

Feature In South 's Victory 

Both Dittmar and Hoyert were among 
the mainsprings in the South's 9 to 5 de- 
feat of the North in the annual all-star 
game played in Baltimore on June 4. Other 
Marylandcrs who participated in this game 
at Homcwood Field were Bob Stock- 
bridge, close attack, and Lloyd Mallonee 
and Otts Lundvall, midfielders. Al Heagy, 
Maryland coach, and Dinty Moore, of the 
Navy, served as aids to Avery Blake of 
Swarthmore who coached the South team.

Jim Kehoe, '40, one of the leading mid- 
dle distance runners of the country while 
at the University, has just been promoted 
to an Army captaincy after coming up 
from the ranks. His promotion took effect 
May 23. 

Enlisted In 1941 

Kehoe enlisted as a private in June, 
1941, and was sent to Fort George Meade 
where he served as athletic director for 
the 115th Infantry of the 29th Division. 
Later Kehoe was sent to the Officers' Can- 
didate School at Fort Benning and re- 
ceived his commission as second lieuten- 
ant in May, 1942, and was assigned to 
the 321st Infantry of the famous 81st 
(Wildcat) Division in Tennessee. He was 
elevated to a first lieutenancy some time 

In 1940 Kehoe ran on three winning 
Maryland relay teams in the Penn Carni- 
val at Philadelphia, the 2-mile, distance 
medley and 4-mile, and later that spring 
captured the junior national A. A. U. half- 
mile crown. In the thrce Penn races, Ke- 
hoe ran the 880 in a 2-mile test in 1:55.2, 
stepped the same distance in the medley 
event in 1:53 and did a 4:20 mile in the 
4 mile victory. 

All In Service 

All the Old Liners who ran w'ith him 
at Penn — Allan Miller, Tommy Fields, 
Mason Chronister, Gene Ochsenreiter, 
and Bob Condon — became officers in 
either the Army or Marine Corps. Chro- 
nister, a captain in the Marines in the 
Philippines, is believed to be a Jap pris- 
oner as he was reported missing in action.

changes of opinions and discussions be 
tween Allied Powers will continue to pave 
the way — I hops and believe to many 
international understandings and ways of 
cooperation. Meanwhile, the allied na 
tions must take necessary steps to strip the 
Axis Powers of the opportunity again to 
attempt to conquer and lay waste the

"You men and women graduating to- 
day from the University of Maryland have 
clone much to prepare yourself for life's 
work. Do not be disheartened by the fact 
that your destinies are being shaped not by 
your own instinctive wishes as to work 
but by war conditions. It will not always be 
1:0. You will have the opportunity within 
a few years, we believe, to regulate your 
own personal affairs with a freedom which 
only peace-time conditions permit. You 
arc about to start the fifteen creative years 
to which Dr. Osier referred. What this 
world becomes during the coming centuries 
will depend much more upon what you do 
during these formulativc years than upon 
any other circumstance or factor. Upon 
your shoulders will rest the responsibility, 
the opportunity for success or failure, for 
good or bad, such as the world has never 
known before. 

"In truth, it will be that the stuff of 
your thoughts will be the stuff of the 
world's thoughts. The weave of your fabric 
will be the vestments of the world. 

"If we — and that means primarily the 
young men and women of today — do our 
job well, we may reasonably hope to secure 
and retain a peaceful world where civiliza- 
tion may again in safety rear its head. We 
can then lay the foundation for a world of 
which it can truthfully be said that "her 
ways are ways of pleasantness and all her 
paths are peace."

held a banquet in his honor and presented 
him with a plaque which carried the in- 
scription "In tribute to a soldier, a gentle- 
man and friend, from those who are better 
men for having served under him." 

"Those who remember him described 
him as the most outstanding military officer 
who ever served at the University of Mary-

several interesting talks on Siberia to mem

Rapid Promotion 

"He took up the armored force tactical 
work shortly after leaving Maryland. He 
became a lieutenant colonel in August,

as a captain in the Regular Army at an un-

John A. Butts, '22, Receives 
Westinghouse Award 

John A. Butts, '22, recently received the 
Order of Merit and a bronze medal from 
the Westinghouse Manufacturing Com- 
pany in recognition of "his vision in fore- 
seeing the demand and for planning and 
carrying through the development of su- 
perior small de-ion circuit breakers and 
panel boards; and for his thorough knowl- 
edge of the market for that product." 

The medal, which was designed by the 
noted sculptor, Rene Chambcllan, when 
the Order of Merit was established in 1935 
by the Westinghouse Company, is award- 
ed by vote of the Company's board of di- 
rectors to "employees who make outstand- 
ing contributions to the electrical indus- 
try." On one side of the medal is a large 
silver "W" and on the other side is in- 
scribed "Whom his fellow men delight 
to honor." 

Mr. Butts, who graduated from the 
University of Mankind with the degree of 
bachelor of science in electrical engineer- 
ing, is manager of the small de-ion breaker 
department and directs production of 
equipment used on naval vessels and in 
war plants to control flow of electric 
power. With the exception of IS months 
which he spent in installing an under- 
ground low-voltage system in I lavana for 
an American utility firm, Mr. Butts has 
been with the Westinghouse Company 
since graduation. His home address is 18 
Holland Road. Wilkinsburg, Pa.

Me+t tf-nam All SectiatU a£ Gcut+itruf, 

A total of 916 Army men from .ill sec- 
tions of the country began theii training 
under the Army Specialized Training Pro- 
gram at the University of Maryland, at 

the opening of the summer quarter on 

July 12. 

All of these men. with the exception of 
121 who arc taking advanced work in lan- 
guages, are enrolled in what is known as 
the basic phase of the program. This in- 
cludes courses in mathematics, physics, 
chemistry, history, geography, English, 
physical training and military tactics. 
Must Keep Up Grades 

The basic training period will extend for 
three 12-week terms which will parallel 
the University quarters. At the conclusion 
of the quarter each trainee will be given 
an examination. If he fails he will be sent 
back to the Army; if he makes good, he 
stands a chance of moving forward into 
another quarter of work and eventually may 
take the advanced program, lasting from 4 
to 48 weeks. 

All of the men with whom the writer 
has talked have been enthusiastic over 
the opportunity that has been provided 
them to continue their education. Many of 
them arc former college students, all arc 
required to have a high school education 
or its equivalent. They have come from as 
far west as Oregon and California, as far 
north as Maine and Minnesota, and as far 
south as Tennessee and Alabama. 
Quartered On Campus 

The trainees are quartered in dormi- 
tories on the campus and their program 
for the day is a strenuous one. They are up 
at 6:20 a. m., have ten minutes for as- 
sembly, with breakfast at 7:05, sick call at 
7:45, and first class at 8:05. This continues 
through the day with a two and one-half 
hour supervised study period from 8:00 
until 10.30 p. m. This schedule will prob- 
ablv recall many memories to alumni of 
the old M. A. C. days. 

Any soldier who scores 115 points in 
his Army general classification test when 
inducted and meets certain other require 
ments set up by the War Department is 
eligible to apply for the Army Specialized 
Training Program. Those under 22 years 
of age must have at least a high school 

education or its equivalent; those with 
more than two \c.irs of college must also 
have had at least one year of college phys 
ics, oi mathematics, or three college courses 
m psychology or must have some knowl- 
edge of at least one modern foreign Ian 
guage. Soldiers who arc 22 years of age or 
over must have had at least one year but 
not more than three years of college, unless 
they have majored in one of the follow- 
ing: mathematics, physics, chemistry, psy- 
chology, or engineering; or unless they have 
some knowledge of at least one modern 
foreign language. 

University Enrollment 
Breaks All Records 

When the dust had settled clown on 
the evening of July 12 at College Park, 
Registrar Alma Preinkart announced that 
the University had the largest summer 
enrollment of students in its history. 

This included a total of 985 civilian 
students taking regular academic courses, 
916 members of the Army Specialized 
Training Program under the immediate 
supervision of Commandant Robert E. 
Wysor and his staff, and 153 men and 
women registered in the summer session 
for teachers. 

Of the total number of civilian students 
registered in the summer quarter at College 
Park, 345 arc women and 640 arc men; 
in the summer session there arc enrolled 
129 women and 24 men. 

To better adjust the teaching program 
of the University to the war effort and to 
meet the requirements of the Army Spe- 
cialized Training Program, all work at Col- 
lege Park is now being given on a four- 
quarter basis — a plan which has been 
utilized extensively for years by many lead- 
ing Universities of the country. Under this 
plan most students may complete their 
college training in three years or less as in- 
struction is now carried on every month in 
the year. 

In addition, all students will be required 
to follow a well-planned physical cduca- 
( Continued on Page 5) 

Schedule is l [eavj 
\t Maryland the trainees follow a 59 
hour vvccklv schedule that does not permit 
of much outside activitv. This includes 24 

hours of classroom work, 24 bonis of su 

paused study, six hours of physical train 
ing and five hours of military tactics. The 
passing grade is the same as foi regulai 
civilian students. 

The A. S. T, P. has in no way hindered 
the academic work given by the University 
for civilian students and some 946 of the 
latter are taking courses on the campus 
this summer along with the soldiers al- 
though not in the same classes. 
Enthusiasm Runs High 

Enthusiasm not only runs high among 
the trainees but instructors on the campus 
have expressed great satisfaction over the 
program and the serious attitude of the 
men. Dr. A. E. Zucker, head of the depart 
ment of Modem Languages, which is pro 
viding three classes in French and one each 
in Spanish and German for the soldiers, 
declared that the program was "the an- 
swer to the modern language teacher's 
dream of a perfect course." Under the plan 
the men in his department will receive 17 
hours of instruction per week and he says 
they should have a speaking knowledge of 
the language at the end of the quarter. The 
trainees have been taking this work seri- 
ously. As one professor pointed out. "they 
realize that the ability to speak these Ian 
guages may mean the difference between 
life and death later on." 

Many of the men feel the courses arc 
going to be "tough" but they agree that 
they have been given a rare opportunity 
and they intend to make the most of it. 
One of the trainees, Charles P. Dean, of 
West Virginia, stated that the A. S. T. P. 
had enabled him to find his life work. Ik- 
said that a year ago he had been a student 
in business administration in one of the 
southern universities. Finding that he had 
no liking for the work he was taking he 
left college and went to work m a muni 
tions plant. He now finds that the basic 
work in engineering at Maryland is just 
what he likes and he intends to follow the 
profession of engineering after the war.

Physical Education 
The physical education program will be 

in the hands of Dr. Spear, football coach 
and Director of Physical Education at the 
University. His program of six hours pel 
week will be divided into three parts — 
the first will include calisthenics of an ap- 
proved Army style. The second will be sub 
divided; for those boys who can pass the 
standard achievement test in such abilities 
as chinning, pushups, rope climbing, etc., 
this part will be devoted to mass games 
such as volley ball, tug of-vvar, piggy back, 
soccer, and speed ball. For those boys who 
are underdeveloped in some physical man 
ncr, the second part of the two hour ses 
sion will be devoted to corrective exer- 
eiscs designed to correct the weakness and 
enable them to pass the achievement test. 
The third part of the period will be devoted 
to combat, hand-to-hand, and similar in- 
struction, alternating with military cross 
country running.

the digestive tract of cattle. 

Gaaclt and MnA,. Sltipiedf ale SuAjedi 

Burton IL Shipley, basketball coach and 
instructor in Physical Education at Man- 
land, and Mrs. Shipley, were the subjects 
recently of an interesting article which 
appeared in the Baltimore Sim on Sunday. 
June 6. 

The article, which included an illustra- 
tion from flic Shipley home, was written 
by (Catherine Scarborough, who is well 
known as a writer on historical subjects, 
with particular emphasis on Maryland and 
Virginia. Miss Scarborough is probably best 
known for her book, "Homes of the Cava- 

Learn American History 

Carning the headline. "Maryland's 
Coach Sahiplcy Lives with the Past." the 
Scarborough article rebels as follows: 

"University of Maryland students who 
drop in for the first time at the home of 
1 null Burton Shipley and Mrs. Shipley 

on Rosemary Lane, about three miles from 
College Park, rarely do so with intent to 
learn something about American history. 
But they seldom leave without doing lust 
that and being highly edified into the bar

Old Line Athletic Contributions 

Ball and Baker To Assist 
In Physical Education 

Herman Ball, assistant principal and 
coach of football at Alleghany High School, 
Cumberland, and Stanley (Tuffy) Baker, 
former football and baseball coach at Point 
Pleasant High School, Point Pleasant. 
New Jersey, have been named as coaches 
and instructors iu the Physical Education 
Department of the University. 

Davis-Elkins Graduate 

Ball is a graduate of Davis-Elkins Col- 
lege. Klkins, \\ . Va., where he majored in 
ocial studies and played guard on the foot- 
ball team. 

Following graduation in 1935, Ball took 
up his coaching duties at Alleghany High 
School where he produced two undefeated 
teams in 1941 and 1942 and such out- 
standing players as Tommy Mont of Mary- 
land and Jim Gaffney, great Tennessee 

Ball has studied at various coaching 
i I uiols under some of the greatest coaches 
m the country. These include Jock Suther- 
land, Clark Shaughncssy, Carl Snavely, 
Bernie Bicrman, and Dick Harlow, to name 
a few. He is quite an exponent of the T 
formation and spent several summers ob- 
serving the Chicago Bears at their south- 
ern camp at Doublcfickl. Wisconsin. 
Halfback At West Virginia 

Baker graduated from the University of 
West Virginia in 1939. Later he received 
a Master of Arts degree from Columbia 
University, where he specialized in cor- 
rective and remedial work. At West Vir- 
ginia Baker majored in social sciences and 
physical education. He also played half- 
back position on the football team and 
was a member of the boxing team. 

From 1939 until 1942 Baker was coach 
of football at Morgantown High School

H. S. Roesler '40, Killed 
In Florida On June 22 

Cadet Herbert S. Roesler. '40, of the 
U. S. Army Air Corps, was killed on June 
22 when he was struck by a train at Boca 
I' iton Florida. He was en route from Boca 
Raton to Yale where he expected to re- 
ceive a commission in a few months. 
"Bed", as he was known to his mam 
friends on the Maryland campus, was a 
member of Deli i Sigma Phi Fraternity.

made during the early years of the nine- 
teenth century at the Staffordshire Potter- 
ies in England, decorated with views of 
American cities and rural topography copied 
from paintings by artists sent to this coun- 
try for the purpose. Today they not only 
arc sought eagerly by collectors, who fre- 
quently pay fantastic prices for a single 
piece, but they form, in some cases, the 
only pictorial record of the American scene 
as it looked when all the rivers were dotted 
with sails and the iron horse had hardly 
been thought of. 

Work Of Many Artists 

"Numerous artists contributed to the sc- 
ries. Both the platter and the plates now 
owned by Mr. and Mrs. Shipley (who have 
been able to secure only four pieces in fif- 
teen years of collecting) were made by- 
James Clews and decorated with view's 
copied, according to Ada Walker Camchl's 
'Blue China Book,' from water-color 
sketches by W. J. Wall, who is regarded 
as the outstanding artist of his time for 
this sort of work. Wall's signature, by 
which his work for the Clews' potteries 
(he painted for several others as well) was 
always identified, is a border of roses and 
parrots combined with decorative scrolls. 

"The scene on one of the plates repre- 
sents the city of Pittsburgh with the crazy 
'Pennsylvania' steamboat chugging pur- 
posefully through the watery foreground. 
The other, which formed a part of Clews' 
'Hudson River Portfolio,' is embellished 
with a view of the picturesque Baker's 
Falls. But it is from the platter, which 
shows the bustling present-day city of New- 
burgh as a tiny village on the bank of the 
Hudson, that man}' of the students — and 
other visitors to the Shipley household — 
frequently learn for the first time that it 
was here that Washington received the 
famous Nicola letter proposing that he be- 
come king, and that the original settlers of 
the place, which bears the name of a Scot- 
tish town, were not British at all, but 
German Lutherans from the Rhenish Pa- 
latinate. . . . 

From Great Grandfather 

"More than these, though she values 
them highly, Mrs. Shipley herself cherishes 
a blue luster pitcher, with a satyr's mask 
for a spout and a dolphin handle, which 
she inherited from her great grandfather,

Old Liners Named On All- 
American Lacrosse Team 

Jack Dittmar, cover point, and John 
Hoycrt, first attack, who were members 
of Mankind's great lacrosse team this 
spring, were named on the All-American 
Lacrosse Team which was announced re- 
cently by the United States Intercollegiate 
Lacrosse Association. 

Three of the leading teams of the year — 
Navy, Maryland, and Johns Hopkins — 
each had two men on the first team, while 
Princeton, Stevens, Drcxcl, and Loyola. 
each placed one. Of the twenty colleges 
forming the Intercollegiate Lacrosse As- 
sociation, twelve were represented by one 
or more men among the three teams. 

On the second All-American team Mary 
land placed Robert Stockbridgc, in home, 
and on the third team the Old Liners 
placed Otts Lundrall, center; Lloyd Mal- 
lonee, second attack, anl Robert Stock- 
bridgc, first attack. 


"Country" Evans '30, 
Now Captain In Marines 

William W. (Country) Evans, '30, one 
time 3-lettcr man at Maryland, is now a 
captain in the Marine Corps and is sta- 
tioned at Cherry Point, North Carolina. 
Evans won his letters in football, basket 
ball, and lacrosse. 

Evans was all-State quarterback in 1939, 
but gained his top fame in lacrosse, in 
which he was an all-time great. He was 
all-America in 1929 and 1930 and led the 
country in scoring in both of these seasons 
with 41 and 38 goals, respectively. He 
counted in all of the 19 games during the 
two campaigns. 

After getting his B.A. and M.A. degrees 
at Maryland, Evans was graduated in law 
from George Washington and practiced 
here and in Montgomery County. His 
home is in Chew Chase. 

Ball and Baker 

(Continued from Column 1) 
and last year he was coach at Point Pleas 
ant High School. He also taught hygiene 
and first aid at the school. 

Baker will be in charge of the intra- 
mural program for the Army Specialized 
Training Program at the University and 
will supervise remedial work for those 
trainees and students who need corrective

on the first Ail-American Lacrosse Team which was announced this month by the United States Inter-Collegiate 
Association. (See article on page 6 and in June issue of Alumni News.)

century. About ten inches high, the pitcher 
is banded with blue about the neck and 
the blue bowl, lighter in tone than the 
majority of blue lusterware, is decorated 
with a basket of flowers in relief. A luster 
tea set decorated with sprays of flowers 
in a rarely seen design dates back to the 
days when even the most fastidious drank 
tea from a saucer and turned the cup 
upside down on a cup plate. Handles of 
the cups are designed to protrude above 
the rim of the cup to prevent the suction 
that would result if the cup rested flat on 
the plate. 

"Majolica ware in the shell and seaweed 
pattern represents another phase of the 
Shipley collection. Made in Phoenixville, 
Pa., and stamped with the Etruscan seal 
used by the once well-known firm of Grif- 
fin, Smith and Hill in the 1880's, this 
ware was so plentiful during the horse-and- 
buggy days that it was given away as prem- 
iums with coffee, tea, cocoa, etc. Fifteen 
years have netted the Shiplcys only nine 
pieces of the shell and seaweed design. . . . 

"A fruit dish in the Sheraton pattern, 
inherited from the same great grandfather 
whose luster pitcher has been passed on 

to her started Mrs. Shipley on the quest 
for early American pressed glass, another 
expression of the past which has also gone 
through the transition from cheap and 
plentiful to relative scarcity and become 
a collector's item. From her 138 pieces. 
Mrs. Shipley now has complete table- 
services in blue, amber and clear glass, as 
well as a number of the much desired 
vasseline pieces. More than one hundred 
pieces arc included in her collection of 
the shell and tassel pattern, claimed by two 
different factories, and made in both round 
and square shapes, the latter being partic- 
ularly hard to come by. Covers of the round 
shell and tassel dishes have a recumbent 
dog for a knob, while the knobs of those 
for the square shapes are a conventionalized 
shell. All of the shells, whatever the shape 
of the dish, are frosted with a crackle effect. 

Interesting House 

"The house in which the Shiplcys live 
with their collection was inspired by the 
old Rossborough Tavern on the University 
campus and once the center of soeial life 
for the entire countryside. Built of hand- 
made over-size brick, it has oak floors of 
random-width boards and a paneled side 
wall in the living room which serves is a 
background for their Staffordshire, luster 

and Majolica ware. The gleaming brass 

doorlocks on the first floor were taken from 
.in old ship which was dismantled a num- 
ber of years ago at Crisfield, Mrs. Ship 
lev's girlhood home, and later installed m 
the family's oyster house, where they were 
painted white. Doors in the house at Col- 
lege Park have been swung left and right to 
conform to the nature of the locks. On the 
porch an old town crier's lantern from 
Czccho Slovakia hangs from the ceiling 
at one end, and an old carriage lamp lights 
the way through the front door. 

"Furnishings of the house include an 
antique comer cupboard from the Shipley 
homestead at Woodbine. Md., made of 
cherry and shipped by water to Elkridge 
Landing, whence it was carried overland 
to Woodbine. Century-old drop leaf tables, 
also made of cherry, combine to form an 
enormous dining table and the sideboard 
is made of the same fruit wood. In the den 
Mrs. Shipley's penchant for mid nine 
teenth century Americana Ends expression 
in some curious old prints, bearing such 
titles as 'Innocence' ami \h favorite.' 
which once were as popular as the works 
of Currier and Ives (which they do not in 
the least resemble) and which may, some 
clay, be sought as eagerly by collectors as 
the output of the lattei is sought today." 



The proof is that where a cigarette counts most, 
Chesterfields are winning more smokers every day. 

The world's best cigarette tobaccos, plus an important manufacturing 
secret give to Chesterfield that special Mildness and Better Taste. This 
secret is Chesterfield's Right Combination of these tobaccos . . . just the 
right amount of each kind blended with all the others makes Chester- 
field the cigarette that really satisfies.

For those few lucky motorists who still 
travel the Baltimore-Washington Boulc 
vard these days, the University of Mary 
land campus and athletic fields present a 
busy picture as 1.400 civilian students and 
Army Specialized Training Program train 
ees toil away at the new and rigorous phys 
ical training program which has been 
started by Dr. Clarence W. Spears, new 
football coach and director of the Student 
Health Program at the University. 

The program has been established for 
the direct purpose of putting men in tip- 
top physical condition for the rigors of 
modern warfare but it is felt at Colics 
Park that here may be the beginning of a 
strong physical education program winch 
will have far-reaching effect on the health 
of Maryland youth after the war is over. 
All Take Program 

The majority of men taking the program 
are soldiers in the Army Specialized Train- 
ing Program, but all male stulents arc re- 
quired to take the course if they are phys- 
ically able. Soldiers and civilians take the 
program together under the same routine 
so as to facilitate rapid movement from 
one activity to another. 

The training program has been divided 
into five divisions: calisthenics, combatives. 
specialized and remedial work, and intra- 
murals. Specialists in each of these fields 
have been secured to head up the work. 

The work in calisthenics is under the 
direction of Harry H. Rice, who was as- 
sociated with the physical training program 
at the University of Michigan. He is as- 
sisted by Tommy Fitzgibbon, a graduate 
of the University of Wisconsin, who has 
had considerable experience with Army 
physical training. The program of calis- 
thenics is given under Army rules and 
regulations and is arranged to keep the 
men active continuously for a twenty-five 
minute period. 

Combarives Under Rubini 

Combatives are under the supervision 
of Fausto Rubini, a graduate of the Uni- 
versity of Wisconsin and boxing coach at 
the University of Maryland. Assisting him 
are Fitzgibbon and Fred Kobayashi, of Cal- 
ifornia, expert in the art of judo fighting. 
Under combatives are taught boxing, judo 
and commando fighting, obstacle course 
skills, military track and cross country 
with the preponderance of tune being 
spent on boxing and commando fighting. 

The specialized training program is 
mainly remedial m character and is planned 
to build and strengthen those parts of I he 
body which have been shown by Army tests 

to be below p.u. The program consists ol 
specialized work in an out J ymnasium 

which has been built cm tin campus espe 
c 1.1 1 K toi tins purpose. Theion Tompkins, 
who has been earning on the same type 
of work for the List two years at the I'm

Old Line Athletic Contributions 

Dr. Spears Faces Difficulties 
In Building Football Team 

With practically all of last year's squad 
gone, with only 400 male civilian students 
on the campus for the summer quarter, and 
with little prospect of being able to use 
men from the Army Specialized Training 
Program, Coach Spears and his assistants 
face a difficult task in building a football 
team at Maryland this fall. 

Few Veterans 

Only three of the men who played foot- 
ball under Shaughncssy last fall are back 
in school. These are Bob James, end; Bill 
llclbock, fullback; and George Keats, quar- 
terback. The only other two varsity ath- 
letes back on the campus are Clark Hu 
dak, a capable baseball outfielder, and Bob 
Stockbridgc, ace attack man from this 
year's great lacrosse team. In addition there 
is Lcs Daily, from last year's freshman foot- 
ball team. 

In spite of this discouraging situation, 
more than fifty men reported for practice 
and have been toiling away with consider- 
able enthusiasm. Because most of the men 
have never played football before, practice 
for the first few weeks will be confined 
to passing, kicking and fundamentals. In 
order to find time from a heavy physical 
education and classroom schedule, practice 
is held in the evening between seven and 

Assisting Dr. Spears are Tommy Fitz- 
gibbon, former trainer and coach at To- 
ledo University; Herman Ball, who made 
an outstanding record as a coach at Alle- 
gany High School in Cumberland; Stan 
Baker, former coach of football at Point 
Pleasant High School in New Jersey; Harry 
Rice, freshman coach at Miami University 
last year; and Fausto Rubini, of Wisconsin. 
All of these men, including Dr. Spears, 
spend the day putting more than 1,400 
civilian students and Army trainees through 
a heavy physical training schedule. 

Schedule Incomplete 

While the football schedule for Mary- 
land was incomplete at this writing, a game 
with West Virginia University, at Mor- 
gantown, has definitely been arranged for 
October 2. This will be the first game be- 
tween Maryland and West Virginia since 
1919 when the Mountaineers won, 27 to 0. 

\s Coach Spears expressed it to one 
newspaper man, "We don't know who's 
going to play, what schools we're going !<> 
play, but we're going to have a football 

Dr. Clarence W. Speers, head foot- 
ball coach and director of the stu- 
dent health program, is one of the

students and A. S. T. P. trainees in

Former Maryland Coach 
Says Soldiers Need Boxing 

A sidelight on the value of a knowledge 
of boxing in modern warfare was fur- 
nished recently by Colonel Harvey L. Mil- 
ler, of the U. S. Marine Corps, who 
coached Maryland ring teams from 1937 
to 1940 and who is now stationed at Nor- 
folk, Va. In a letter to Esquire Magazine, 
in which he commented on that magazine's 
recent poll, which debated the military 
value of boxing, Colonel Miller had the 
following to say: 

"The ability to box is of basic value in 
such hand-to-band combat as took place 
on Guadalcanal. The basic boxing needs 
augmentation to the extent of teaching 
judo, jiujitsu, wrestling and knife fighting. 

"The basic value of boxing is that it 
teaches the instinctive moves that may 
mean the difference between living and 
dying in bush and jungle warfare. An 
enemy charges with knife or bayonet. In- 
stinctively the trained boxer side steps cor- 
rectly and counter punches correctly. The 
COUnter-punching baud carries a weapon. 

The attacker thus side stepped dies. Men 

who side step and counter punch correctly

Fitzgibbon and Tompkins 
Join University Staff 

Tommy Fitzgibbon, former trainer and 
track and cross country coach at the Uni- 
versity of Toledo, and Alfred Tompkins, 
assistant supervisor of physical education 
at the University of Michigan, have joined 
the physical education staff of the Uni- 

Will Teach Judo 

Fitzgibbon, who was recently released 
from the Army where he received a thor- 
ough training with the Rangers, will as- 
sist in the physical training program and 
teach judo. 

He is a graduate of the University of 
Wisconsin, having received his Bachelor 
of Science degree from that school in 1933 
and his Master's degree in Physical Educa- 
tion four years later. At various times Fitz- 
gibbon served as track coach and trainer, 
director of playgrounds for the Milwaukee 
Recreational System, and athletic director 
of the Milwaukee Engineering School, 
where he coached basketball, baseball, 
track, tennis and golf. 

At Toledo 

In 1940 Fitzgibbon joined the staff of 
the University of Toledo under the direc- 
tion of Dr. Spears. At Toledo he served as 
coach and trainer for the track and cross 
country teams. 

Tompkins began his athletic career at 
Jackson High School, in Jackson, Michi- 
gan, and won two varsity letters for foot- 
ball and basketball. He graduated from 
Ann Arbor High School, where he won 
varsity letters in football, basketball and 

Moving on to Michigan State Teachers 
College, Tompkins majored in physical 
education as well as playing three years of 
varsity football and gymnastics. He also 
was a varsity swimmer for two years. Upon 
graduation, Tompkins was assistant coach 
in football, gymnastics and track before 
going to Mt. Clements High School, Mt. 
Clements, Michigan. 

Wide Experience 

Tompkins was at Mt. Clements High for 
sixteen years as director of physical edu- 
cation. He was also varsity coach of swim 
ming and track. At Mt. Clements, a school 
of 2600 students, be put on an annual 
gymnastics circus which became a tradition 
of the school. 

In 1941, Tompkins went to the U. of 
Michigan as assistant supervisor in a pro 
gram including J75 Marines. 1 sill) Navy 
men, and more than 3,000 Army men.

live to tell about it. Those that fail to do 
that do not live. It is that simple and fel 
lows who tell you boxing has no militar) 
value simply do not know what is going 
on in hand-to-hand combat. 

"As to boxing declining in public intei 
est, cities like Washington, D. C, are 
drawing capacity houses, turning people 

' away, in spite of the fact that the talent 
is mediocre compared to what was offered 
to slim crowds in the pre war days. There 
is a tremendous public interest in com 
bative sport these clays. . . . 

"National control and national unity in 
boxing would straighten things out. Big 

, gates and title bouts arc not essential. Box- 
ing itself is very much so. It ought to be 

1 taught in schools, colleges, boys' clubs. 

I Bovs who never intend to take part in pub- 
he matches should be taught to handle 

, their fists and feet and to make use of the 
combat instincts developed by boxing. It 
may save their lives." 

Editor's Note — Colonel Miller, who 
produced two Southern Conference Boxing 
teams at Mankind, has been identified with 
boxing as a boxer, trainer, referee, sports 
elitor, and promoter since 1903. He is a 
former president of the National Boxing

ments; in the hearts of those whose asso- 
ciation was simply on the ground of friend- 
ship; in the hearts of those who felt drawn 
to him by his gracious and warm-hearted 
greetings, given unsparingly and universally 
to the man on the street as well as in the 
intimacy of his home."

Good Response 

The voluntary phase of the intramural 
program is carried on from 6:3l) to S:(MI in 
the evening. Tournaments have been or- 
ganized in softball with 22 teams entered 
and more than 30 men have signed up for 
a tennis tournament. In the softball tour- 
nament there are two leagues, one of 
Army trainees and one of civilians. A round 
robin is being played, and the winners in 
each league will play off the championship. 
It is planned to give prizes and trophies 
for the winners of these contests just as 
were given to winners in peace time inter 
collegiate activities. 

That the program has captured the 
imagination and enthusiasm of the stu 
dents and trainees is shown by the fact 
that nearly 330 men turned up for the 
intramural program voluntarily. This re- 
sponse would seem to indicate a promising 
future for the development of Dr. Spears' 
physical education program at the Univei 
sitv of Maryland.

Unusual Coincidence 
Related by Silber Brothers 

The two Silbei brothers, Bernard, '32, 
and Samuel, '34, had .1 unique experience 

Which was described in the press I Ins sum 


Watched Brother's Fight 
Shortly after Lieutenant Commandei 

Samuel Silber reached Guadalcanal, he 
participated in his fust dog 6ghl with Jap 
ancsc aviators. The fight was eagerly 
watched by Bernard, who did not know 
that the American involved was Ins own 

Later on Lieutenant Silbei wrote to bis 
brother that be bad seen that fight, the first 
of its kind he had witnessed. In fact, he 
saw it from his post only two miles distant 
from Commander Silber's base. It was 
then that he learned in a letter from his 
brother that it had been Samuel be was 

Lieutenant Silber shortly was assigned 
to another post and the brothers still have 
not met. 

Praises Marines 

In his letter Commander Silber ex- 
pressed great concern over the strikes then 
taking place in the United States. I le said 
"No matter how tough it gets in this 
country it never will be as tough as fight 
ing at Guadalcanal. No praise is sufficient 
for the marvelous job done there by our

Movable Scaffolding 

\mong the engineering It its 
carried out in the construction of the 
building was the preparation of two huge 
scaffoldings which could be moved along 
on rollers as the building was completed. 

Mor< than $00,000 board feet of lumbei 

weie saved bv using movable instead of the 
more usual type of permanent 9 
Although a numbei of contractors and 

engineers expressed the belief that scaffold 
ing of this tvpe would not prove piactic 
able the two large wood structures were 
moved with comparative ease with three 
band wenches and some four inch pipes 
which were used as rollers to bear the 
weight of the load. 

Commander Silber was equally lauda- 
tor} about the fivers aboard the famous 
Carrier Enterprise which he dubbed "a 
lucky ship." He was aboard the Enter 
prise on its shakedown cruise, and said, "It 
has been a marvelous ship with the greatest 
of crews ever since." 

After completing his work at the Uni- 
veisitv Commander Silber entered Navy 
Aviation as a Cadet in 1935. He trained 
for four v ears at Pcnsacola and later taught 
there and at Miami Navy Training Bases.

Old Line Athletic Contributions 

Coast Guard Visits Campus 
For Opening Game Sept. 25 

\iclcd by twice a week scrimmages with 
the Washington Redskins, national foot- 
hall champions, the Old Liner football 
team was rapidly rounding into shape as 
this issue of the News went to press. 
Coach Spears' proteges gave every indica- 
tion that they would be ready for the first 
game of the season with Curtis Bay Coast 
Guard at Byrd Stadium on September 25. 
Team Is Light 

Because the team this yeai is a light one 
.! c s has been laid on speed and decep- 
tion rather than driving power. Passing 
and kicking are being emphasized and the 
boys are constantly being shifted around 
to find the best spot for their particular 

Reverses, spinners and passes will con 
stitutc most of the repertoire of the Old 
Liners and they will use a single wingback 
formation rather than the much-vaunted 
"T" of last year. Wingbacks have provided 
plenty of tough opposition and one of its 
most outstanding exponents, Georgia Tech. 
has used the wingback for ye^irs. 
Fast And Shifty 

Most of Maryland's backfield men this 
year are fast and shifty, a combination that 
will lend itself well to a tricky offense. 

Those who seem fairly well assured of 
a berth on the varsity team are Ralph 
Fico, left end; Edward Ilcrson, right end:

Redskins Use College Park 
As Summer Training Site 

For the third time in 12 months the 
athletic facilities of the University of Mary- 
land were used as a training site by a 
professional athletic team when the na- 
tional football champions, the Washington 
Redskins, camped out at College Park for 
their training. 

The other two professional clubs to use 
the Old Line athletic fields and equipment 
were the Chicago Bears, who were here 
for a short stay last fall, and the Wash- 
ington Senators who, because of travel re- 
strictions last spring, carried on their train- 
ing close to home base rather than go to 
their old training grounds in Florida. 
Large Aggregation 

The Redskins brought a large aggrega- 
tion of players, coaches and trainers, in- 
cluding the widely advertised "Slinging" 
Sammy Baugh and "Andy" Farkas, who 
had the eyes popping out of practically all 
football fans from six to sixty in the Col- 
lege Park area. 

The "Skins" lived in the Phi Delta 
Theta Fraternity House and even brought 
their own cook along. Practice was held 
twice daily on the practice field back of 
Byrd Stadium and scrimmages were held 
every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon 
with the Old Liners. These scrimmages 
with the national champs were of great 
value to the Old Liners. 

Byrd Stadium, which will be the scene of the opening football game of the season when Curtis Bay Coast Guard is met by tlic 

Old Liners on September 25. Although Maryland has one of the greenest and lightest teams in its history "Doc" Spears has been 

putting the pressure on his charges during the last few weeks and the boys should give a good account of themselves — come 

Saturday. It is hoped thai as many Alumni as can will come back to the campus for the day.

Hunting With Jeeps 

"Four a. m. found Eve soldiers and 
Ghunda starting on a limit for gazelles 
in a jeep and small truck. This was Ghun- 
da's forte; he was the only indispensable 
person aboard. Constantly he saw gazelles 
in the distance which none of us could sec. 
The smallest things on the desert attracted 
him. At one time he shouted to stop, 
ran about thirty yards and caught a large 
desert lizard before we knew what he was 
after. I renamed him a Human Compass 
as it was only because of his uncanny sense 
of direction in his desert that enabled us 
to find our starting point, without recourse 
to compass readings. 

"Even with compass readings we might 
never have returned in the same clay, as 
gazelle hunting takes you at any angle and 
distance across the trackless desert on short 

"When the prey was sighted Chunda 
would throw his right arm forward time 
and again pointing the direction. The 
eager, forward position of his bodv and his 
straight arm seemed to shout 'Let's go, 
food ahead.' It was food we sought so the 
unpleasantness of hunting a beautiful, 

I speedy animal with a man-made jeep was 

j somewhat abated. 

Little Sport 

"It could hardly be called a sport as the 
I African gazelle had about one chance out 
J of 100 in outrunning the jeep or losing it. 

In spite of the food aspect, I did insist 

on letting several go which had outrun

some of our planes are flying: today — 
on top of practically anything that 
flies — the air is so thin that a plane 
engine would lose about four-fifths of 
its rated sea-level horsepower if it 
weren't equipped with a turbosuper- 

It was back in the days of World 
War 1 that the Army Air Corps first 
asked General Electric engineers 
to tackle the problem of feeding plane 
engines air under pressure to cure the 
loss of power at high altitudes. The 

result was the turbosuperchargcr — a 
device that scoops in 60-below-zero 
air and crams it down the engine's 
windpipe to provide the same amount 
of oxygen it would normally get at 
sea level. And since the turbosuper- 
chargcr takes its power from the 
engine's own red-hot exhaust gases, 
it almost makes the plane lift itself 
by its own bootstraps. 

The first success came in 1918, on 
Pike's Peak, where a supercharged 
Liberty engine, rated at 350 horse- 
power, actually delivered 356 horse- 
power at 14,000 feet. That was just 
the beginning. For 20-odd years G-E 
engineers worked to improve the 
device. When the present war broke 
out, it was ready — a potent, all- 
American weapon which rhe Axis, for 
all its years of war preparation, 
coidd not match. Today all of Amer- 
ica's big bombers are equipped with 
turbosupcrchargers. And all of these 
turbosuperchargers are built either by 
General Electric or in the plants of 
two other manufacturers from G-E 

The turbosuperchargcr is just one 
of many engineering near-miracles 
developed in industrial laboratories in 
time to put on a uniform and begin 

fighting for America. We have them 
because of the happy combination of 
ingenuity and perseverance which 
has always characterized American 
industry. It is a combination that will 
have a lot to do with winning the war, 
and with building the better world 
hereafter. For then the men who are

Two medals, the Air Medal and the Oak 
Eeaf Cluster, awarded posthumously to 
Lieut. William B. Drysdale, who was a 
student in the College of Engineering dur- 
ing the winter of 1939 40, were presented 
this spring to his mother, Mrs. Rebecca 
C. Drysdale. at a special ceremony at 
Boiling Field. The medals were presented 
by Col. Lewis R. Parker, commandant of 
Rollins; Field. 

Lieutenant Drysdale, who was commis 
sioned as a fighter pilot at Maxwell Field, 
Alabama, received the Air Medal for "ex 
traordinary achievement while participating 
in a mass movement of single seater planes 
from June 7, 1942, over extremely hazard 
ous, newly established over water air routes 
under very uncertain weather conditions." 

The Oak Leaf Cluster, equivalent to a 
second Air Medal, was awarded Lieutenant 
Drysdale lor participating in ten sorties

Emphasizes Need For Enlightened Leadership and 
World Collaboration To Guarantee Outlawry Of War 

At an impressive but streamlined cert' 
mony, 158 seniors and 15 graduate stu 
dents received their diplomas at Com 
mencement Exercises on September 30. 

The degrees were conferred by President 
Byrd and the main address was delivered 
by Major General Milton A. Reckord, 
Commanding General of the Third Service 

Command, who was given the honorary 
degree of Doctor of Laws. 

Music for the occasion was provided by 
the University String Ensemble under the 
direction of Hail in Randall, head of the 
Music Department, and the benediction 
was sung by Mrs. Theresa Nesbitt, of Bal- 
timore. The invocation was given by the 
Reverend Nathaniel C. Acton, Rector of 
the St. Andrew's Church of College Park. 

On Wednesday evening the members 
of the senior class held their annual ban- 
quet in Washington and on the preceding 
Saturday a Black and Gold Ball was held 
in the Coliseum as a part of the Com- 
mencement Week program. 

World Needs Leaders 
In his address General Reckord told the 
members of the senior class that they 
must help to furnish the leadership of to- 
morrow which he said "will not shrink at 
the mention of world collaboration." 

"It will take real leadership to bring 
the present struggle to a successful con 
elusion." he said. "It must obtain in all 
ranks of our armed forces, and it must 
prevail on the production lines. The war 
is still not yet won. The forces of our ene- 
mies are now more numerous than when 
we entered the conflict. The Allies have 
barely obtained a foothold on the Euro- 
pean Continent, and they have hardly 
begun to recoup our losses in Asia. In 
the last war. General Pershing's wise 
counsel of 'on to Berlin' fell on deaf ears. 
We will not make the same mistake twice. 
This time we will not stop until it is cer- 
tain that our enemies are reduced to the 
point where they will never again be able 
to unleash their forces of hate and Oppres 
sion. But we still have a long way to go 
to reach Berlin and Tokyo. Salerno demon 
shates thai those roads will not be easy to 

"Some of miu will soon be called upon 
to lead men in battle. I cannot conceive of 
a nobler nor a more purposeful duty. There 
is no greiitcr test of a man's character. 
YToui reputation with the men will have 
been established bv your conduct in daily 

contacts with them. By setting an example 
of courage and fearlessness, you will in- 
spire a loyalty in them which will know 
no bounds. Loyalty is a quality which does 
not exist among peoples led by Hitler and 
his ilk. It flourishes only in lands of oppor- 
tunity and freedom. . . . 

"I he young men and women of today 
are demonstrating by deeds of unsurpassed 
courage that they cherish their country's 
ideals. Ibex will not return home to hecd- 
lesslj drop the burden they have so man 
fully shouldered. They wall be fired by 
the true democratic spirit that equal op- 
portunities (not equal results, but equal 
opportunities) should be open to all. They 
will fully reali/e that the survival value 
of our democracy is directly dependent on 
the ability of those at its helm. 

Must Win The Peace 

"They will make certain that the peace 
is won when the war is done. In retrospect, 
there is no doubt that, as a nation, we 
failed after the successful termination of 
World War I. We failed to take those 
steps which would insure peace. A group 
of die-hard isolationists then succeeded in 
corralling sufficient support to completely 
vitiate the constructive efforts of Woodrow

When Mrs. John L. Whitehurst, only 
woman member of the University's Board 
of Regents and President of the General 
Federation of Women's Clubs, visited the 
British Isles this summer she was prepared 
to talk with diplomats, with people who 
had been blitzed from their homes, with 
lords and ladies, with industrial workers. 

The only thing she wasn't entirely pre- 
pared for was a private interview with the 
Queen of England. 

But that's what she got. Her story, re- 
lated in a special interview in the Baltimore 
Sun, is reprinted here in part: 

"I was in Glasgow getting ready to leave 
for Edinburgh when the telegram arrived 
saving that Queen Elizabeth would see 
me the following afternoon," she said. 
"The whole thing was arranged by Am- 
bassador Winant and, you see, I didn't 
really have time to get very seared. 

"I asked a lot of questions, of course, 
of the people I knew. One gentleman told 
me that the Queen was so gracious that 
she could charm a bird out of a tree. An- 
other said that she had such a magnetic 
personality that she could hold all the 
men in England in the hollow of her hand. 
And that is certainly true. I have never 
met a more completely charming woman 
in my life. 

"Anyway, when I got to the palace. I 
still didn't have any idea of exactly what I 
was supposed to do. I was ushered in 
through a private entrance and led through 
corridor after corridor. I finally arrived 
at a little waiting room where a lady-in- 
waiting took me over. 

"Incidentally, the palace has been strip-

Old Line Athletic Contributions 

Old Liners Improve As 
Football Season Advances 

With one loss and two wins as this 
issue of the News went to press, the Old 
Line football team was beginning to hit 
its mid season stride and seemed destined 
to come through the schedule with a bet- 
ter- than-avcragc record. 

The two toughest games of the year 
have yet to be played, that with Pcnn 
State at College Park on October 23, and 
Bainbridge Naval Station, at Port Deposit 
on November 13. These will be hard, but 
in all other remaining games the Old 
Liners should be more or less on an even 

Team Shows Power 

The score of the opening game with the 
Curtis Bay Coast Guard Cutters on Sep- 
tember 2 t does not give a true indication 
of the power of the Okl Liners. Maryland 
muffed three opportunities to score and 
the statistics on the game show that the 
Old Liners piled up 16 first downs to 5 
for the Cutters. Both of the Coast Guard 
touchdowns were made through the air, a 
department that the Old Liners were woe- 
fully walk in at that time. The Maryland 
line, however, showed considerable strength 
and pushed the Guardsmen around at will 
during most of the game. However, they 
were able to make only one drive pay off. 

In the Wake Forest game Maryland 
continued to show improvement and pro- 
vided one of the greatest thrills seen in 
these parts for some years. Thrice frustrat- 
ing Wake Forest touchdowns within seven 
yards of the goal in the second period, the

Captain Bozy Berger, '32 
Stationed At Boiling Field 

Louis William (Bozv) Berger, '32, who 
has become one of the shining lights of 
major league baseball, was recently pro- 
moted to the rank of captain, according 

to an announcement by the W? Depart 

Captain Berger was an outstanding ath- 
lete at the University, playing halfback 
for three years on the varsity football team 
and third base and shortstop on the base-

sufficient, isolated, and insulated from the 
rest of the world by our two great oceans. 

And yet this seemed to be our national 
attitude following 1918. We believed thai 
we could let the rest of the world go to 
ruin if it wanted to, and we would make 
plenty of money constructing the instru- 
ments of its destruction. It is for that rca 
son that the Nazis had their way for so 
long, that Japan continued unmolested 
year after year preparing for the present 
attempt at conquest — because we, the 
most powerful single nation in the world, 
said it was none of our business. 

World Collaboration Needed 

"The leaders of tomorrow will not 
shrink at the mention of world collabora- 
tion. They will know that our democracy 
cannot flourish unscathed in a world of 
nations primed for war. Those who will 
win this war by their own sweat and blood 
will be the leaders in effecting a system of 
world cooperation which will guarantee the 
outlawry of war forever. They will im- 
press their will firmly in the minds of their 
chosen representatives to the end that 
every known talent be employed in devis- 
ing a plan for the assurance of international 
goodwill and everlasting peace. 

"It is important that you, as college 
men and women, fully understand the na- 
ture of that leadership to which you will 
be called. Intelligent and courageous lead- 
ership is more necessary under democracy 
than under any other form of government. 
In the recent words of a prominent edu- 
cator: 'The college man will find that his 
education will be valid in the post-war era 
because it rests on timeless values.' No 
political system so well expresses man's 
acceptance of those values as that under 
which we live. We arc not fighting for a 
new order. We are fighting for a world 
in which America can chart her future 
progress as a projection of the curve which 
her history has already plotted. . . . Either 
we go ahead, perfecting the political and 
moral system we have inherited or we let 
the system perish and the world revert to 

"These arc the plain duties of each one 
of you. Diogenes stated long ago that the 
foundation of the state is the education of 
its youth. I have no fears concerning 
your justifying the confidence this Univer- 
sity has shown in you. May you go forth 
from these halls with new purpose, re- 
solved to lend your full support to our 
worthy cause. With your help. America 
is bound to emerge triumphant, and forge 
ahead perfecting the tradition which is our

dark drab trousers and shuts, with no Coats. 

"I kept saying to myself, 'Now, don't 
get nervous. You want to take in everj 
single detail of this visit because it is 
something you will want to remember al- 
ways.' \\ e waited for what seemed like 
an awfully long time in this waiting room, 
which was carpeted in pea green. The 
Victorian furniture was upholstered in red 

"Finally I was told that the Queen 
would see me. We walked through a lot 
more corridors and at last I was ushered 
into a French room, where Queen Eliza- 
beth sat. She was wearing a gray dress with 
pin tucks and her bag was of the same 

"I had asked about the curtsying bus- 
iness, and they told me that although 
many Americans objected to the custom, 
it was appreciated. They told mc to use 
my own judgment. 

"I thought, 'Well, here goes,' and curt- 
syed to the best of my ability. The lady- 
in-waiting said, 'Mrs. Whitehurst,' and 
left. I was alone with the Queen of Eng- 

"The Queen looked up and gave me 
that charming smile that has captured the 
hearts of all Britain. She merely said 
'Won't you sit down?' and I felt at ease at 
once. She is the easiest person to talk with 
I have ever seen. She immediately said 
that she understood I had been in Scot- 
land, and we embarked on a delightful 
introductory conversation about her na- 
tive land. 

"I noticed that the Queen herself did 
not talk a lot. She asked question after 
question about what I thought of this and 
that, what American club women did and 
thought. I felt as if I were just talking 
to another woman like myself. From her 
manner she could have been a member 
of a club in Missouri or Texas or even a 
personal friend." 

Mrs. Whitehurst was unqualified in her 
praise of the British people. She was fasci 
nated by the "queue up" policy, adopted 
since the war. 

"We could really use something like 
that in Washington," said Mrs. White- 
hurst, who goes to the federation general 
headquarters in the Capital City every day. 
"Instead of jamming up at entrances and 
doors, the British people stand in line for 
everything. Whether it's to get in a bus 
or buy apples, the people 'queue up,' wait 
ing patiently in line until their turns

Old Line Athletic Contributions 

Old Line Football Team 
Faces Tough Opposition 

In spite of the rather unimposing record 
of three wins and four losses at this Writ- 
ing the University of Maryland has a po- 
tentially good football aggregation and 
with more age and experience there is little 
doubt that a number of close stores would 
have turned out to be wins for the Old 

Stiff Opposition 

All through the fall Coach Spears faced 
a heart breaking problem of starting from 
scratch and bringing a team into shape 
which could make a creditable showing 
against service teams which included in 
their ranks many former college and Uni 
versity stars. This was particularly true in 
the games with Penn State and Bainbridge. 

Everyone agrees that Maryland stepped 
clear out of its class when it invited Penn 
State for the Homecoming struggle in 
Byrd Stadium which ended 45-0 in favor 
of the Nittany Lions. The situation was 
only made worse for the Old Liners by the 
fact that they had lost the services of a 

number of thci 

better players the week 

Show Power 

However, the next week the Old Liners 
came hack full blast and made an ex- 
tremely good showing against Greenville 
\nn\ Air Base of Greenville, South Car- 
olina, which they defeated 4 VIS. Mary- 
land's backfield played exceptionally fine 
highspeed and hard-plunging ball against 
the South Carolinians with only two fum- 
bles marring the play. Three touchdowns 
were scored by the Old Liners in the first

Basketball Season Opens With 
Marines On December 11 

Burton H. Shipley, Mankind's veteran 
basketball coach, is confronted this year 
with the youngest, lightest and smallest 
squad he has ever had under his wing. 
Like the football team, the basketball squad 
is composed almost entirely of those unfit 
for military duty or too young to be in 
the service. 

Play Academies 

December 1 1 will be the date of the first 
game of Maryland's 18-gamc basketball 
schedule which consists of colleges and 
service teams in the nearby vicinity. High- 
lights of the basketball season will be 
games with the United States Military and 
Naval Academics at West Point and An- 
napolis. The opening game will be with 
the Quantico Marines at College Park. 

Forwards remaining on the team arc 
Warren Hoffeeker, 17 years old; Joseph 
Acito, 2-A; Bob Grallcy, 16 years old; Ed- 
ward Polhamus, 4-F; and John Flynn, 4-F 
and a member of last year's frosh squad.

of the second quarter, and the last three 
came m the third quarter. A quarterback 
sneak by Joe Maker, ass yard drive led by 
Dick Tuschak, and another 11 yard end 
run In Tuschak gave Maryland its Erst 
quarter tallies. A 25-yard pass into the end 
/.one. caught by Les Daly, was responsible 
for the second quartet score. The third 
quarter scores were made by Fullback Bob 
Troll, who plunged five yards for a touch 
clown and made a reverse run of 24 yards; 
and by Bill Hickman's end run of \2 

irginia s 

coach. Prank Murray, served 

a much more potent "T" than was ex- 
pected and Maryland went down to defeat 
39-0 in the annual tussel between the Old 
Liners and the Cavaliers at Charlottesville 
on November 6. It was simply one of those 
days when about everything the Old Liners 
did was wrong and everything the Virgin- 
ians did was right. The Old Liners threat 
cued seriously only once when a penalty 
for pass interception gave them a first 
clown on the Cavalier's 8-yard line. How- 
ever, the Virginians stiffened and allowed 
only three yards in four plays. 

V. M. I. On Thanksgiving 

At this writing Maryland has two games 
remaining — one with the powerful Bain- 
bridgc Naval Training Station on Novem- 
ber 13 and the other with Virginia Mili- 
tary Institute on Thanksgiving Day. Since 
Bainbridge steam-rollered over the Curtis 
Bay Coast Guard, a team which had pre- 
viously defeated the Old Liners, little hope 
can be held out for a Terrapin victory, but 
the game with the V. M. I. Kaydcts should 
be a much more evenly matched affair since 
the Southerners have had about the same 
problems to contend with at Lexington as 
we have here.

the Stage Door Canteen and the canteen 
of the Church of the Epiphany in Wash- 
ington. On December 19 a special program 
was given at the St. Andrew's Church in 
College Park and at this writing an invi- 
tation had been received to appear before 
the Arts Club in Washington on February 

The Manland ASP Chorus boasts 45 
members who hail from choirs and chor- 
uses from every section of the country, 
Yale, Harvard. Northwestern, Ohio State 
and Maryland are a few of the institutions 
represented in the chorus, which is under 
the direction of Private Charles A. Brock, 
of Texas.

New Anesthetic Reported By QcUcM^ ZdiAMiAd P«<Ul '25, Cited 
Dr. John C. Krantz, Jr.,V23 /) / 

Md. Medical School Professor 
Spent Five Years on Research 

Discovery of a new anesthetic reported 
to be three to five times more potent than 
ether and considerably safer was announced 
recently at a meeting of the New Jcrscv 
section of the American Chemical Society 
by Dr. John C. Krantz. Jr., '2s. Professor of 
Pharmacology at the University of Marx- 
land Medieal School. The new anesthetic 
is the result of five years of research by 
Dr. Krantz and three associates. 

The anesthetic, dubbed "I'ropcthylcnc," 
will require only a fraction of the shipping 
space required by ether. Dr. Krantz said. 
is not highly volatile, and docs not "boil" 
away in tropical climates. For these rea- 
sons, among others. Dr. Krantz expects the 
compound to become an important medical 
factor in the present war. 

He says that the anesthetic will be avail 
able for civilian use under certain limi- 
tations. (Continued on Page 5)

University of Maryland School of Den 
tistry, was honored recently when the hon- 
orary degree of Doctor of Science was be-

in dental and professional 
circles. During his career 
the Dean has served as pres- 
ident of the American Asso- 
ciation of Dental Schools

Dean Levin B. Broughton 

Passes Away Suddenly 

The University of Man land lost one of 
its most beloved faculty members in the 
death of Dr. Levin Bowland Broughton, 

| '08, who passed away suddenly at his res- 
idence in College Park on December 13. 
He became ill in his office and only a few 
hours after going to his home he died of 
a heart attack. He had been associated with 

I the University for 35 years. 

Dr. Broughton was born on the Eastern 

Shore of Maryland in the town of Poco- 

mokc on March 29, 1886. He attended the 

i Pocomokc High School and Bcllcfontc 

Academy in Bcllcfontc, Pa. 

He entered the old Maryland Agricul- 
tural College in 1904, receiving his bach- 
elor of science degree four years later and 
his master of science degree in 1911. He 
pursued graduate work at George Wash- 
ington University, Johns Hopkins Univer- 
sity and Ohio State University and was 
gi anted the doctor of philosophy degree 
from the latter institution in 1926. 

Dr. Broughton became a member of 
the staff of the Maryland Agricultural Col- 
lege following graduation in 1908. He 
first served as assistant chemist, becoming 
associate chemist in 1914; full professor 
in 1918 and state chemist and head of the 
department of chemistry in 1929. He was 
named Dean of the College of Arts and 
Sciences in 193" following the retirement

New Anesthetic 

(Continued from Page 3) 

Chemically the new anesthetic 
is named iso propcnyl vinyl ox- 
ide. Dr. Kraut/, said, adding 
that it is related structurally to 
three widely used anesthetics, 
cyclopropane, ethyl ether, and 

The first experiment upon a 
human being was conducted 
last June when Mrs. Constance 
Black, herself an experienced 
anesthetist, allowed it to be ad 
ministered to her. She reported 
she found inhalation pleasant 
and without disagreeable affects. 

"In more than forty anesthe- 
sias conducted with propcthy- 
lenc there has been evidenced 
these advantages — case of going 
under the anesthetic, low con- 
centration of blood, rapidity of 
recovery, and slight anesthetic 
discomfort," Dr. Kraut/ said.

Old Line Athletic Contributions 

Basketball Team Loses 
Opening Game With Marines 

The Quantico Marines landed at Col- 
lege Park on December 1 1 and spoiled 
Maryland's 1943-44 basketball opener with 
a reeling 59-33 win. 

The much older former college stars 
held a towering edge over the tiny Old 
Liners. Big Bill Closs, former All-Ameri- 
can at Rice, led the Leatherneck attack 
with 16 points. 

Coach Shipley immediately began pol- 
ishing the rough edges in the Maryland 
play for the Old Liners face a tough sea- 
son against experienced opposition. 
Many Stars Lost 

Shipley hasn't stalwarts like 
Bait/.. Travis, James, Shuerholz, 
and Mont this year, but he has 
got a spirited group that will go 
in there and fight even though 
outclassed. Ermy Englcbert, last 
year's substitute, is the only 
varsity man to come back this 
year. Little Jack Flynn and Char 
lie Hiden, returning from the 
1942-43 freshman squad, are 
helping to bolster the veteran- 
riddled Shipley team. Big Walt 
Kolodne, a transfer from Catho- 
lic University of Washington, is 
expected to help fill the gap left 
by the loss of high-scoring Ernie 

Diminutives Joe Acito and 
Fred Kishi arc adding the much- 
needed speed and spirited play 
necessary to the veteranless quin- 
tet. Rangy Gilbert Tauschcr, six 
feet, six inches, 205 pounds of 
pivot material, will be a great 
help to the Tcrp five. Speedy 
Dick Tushak, stellar Maryland 
backfield man. is a promising 
forward, and is expected to add 
the punch needed on offense. 
Lack Experience 

Shipley's main trouble is lack 
of experience along with speed 
and comprehension of plays. - 
Most of the team members have 
not played college ball, and con 
scqucntly have not been initiated into the 
Fast-moving and usually high brand of 
ball handling. 

The worst is yet to come for the Old 
Liners with such teams as Virginia, Bain- 
bridge Navy, Norfolk Training Station.

Karangelen and Tushak 
Play Outstanding Football 

Pete Karangelen, Maryland guard, has 
been named on the Bainbridgc Navy's all- 
opponent football team. Karangelen's stel- 
lar playing on the Terp's rather weak line 
made him stand out on defense as well as 
offensive blocking. The rugged linesman's 
selection is significant because of Bain- 
bridge's untied, unbeaten record this year. 

Speedy Dick Tushak, Tcrp left half- 
back, was nominated to the third All- 
South team in recent selections. Tushak's 
speed and deft ball handling gained much 
Maryland yardage against strong opposition. 

i& L4 ** vl 

Burton Shipley, '14, Maryland's veteran basketball coach, 
enters his twenty-first year of coaching at the Old Line 
school this winter and probably never faced a more diffi- 
cult job in his coaching experience. 

Ship was somexchat of a seven-day wonder when he was 
a student at old M.A.C., winning six letters in football, five 
in baseball and four in basketball. He was able to accom- 
plish this because he attended a preparatory school which 
was conducted at M.A.C. in those days. In addition, Ship 
was named on the All-American grid team twice, as quar- 
terback and fullback. The University of Maryland Alumni 
Association added to his long list of honors by nayning him 
all-time third baseman for Maryland baseball teams. 

Following graduation Shipley coached at Perkiomen 
Preparatory School. Pennsbxirg. Pa., for one year, spent an- 
other at Marshall College in West Virginia, and five years 
at U, of Delaware before returning to his Alma Mater.

Boxers Begin Training For 
Rugged Winter Schedule 

Once again the sound of leather swap- 
ping echoes through Ritchie Coliseum as 
the aspirants for the boxing team work out 
in preparation for an All-University Boxing 
Tournament to be held in the Coliseum 
on December 18 and 21. Those who sur- 
vive the final bouts will constitute the Old 
Line ring squad for this year, according 
to Fausto Rubin i, Maryland's ring coach. 
Thirty-six civilian boys will battle it out 
for nine weight championships ranging 
from 125 to 175-pound classes. The roster 
of contestants will be made up almost 
entirely of 17-year-olds and those 
deferred by draft, and main of 
them put the gloves on for the 
first time. 

Gold and silver awards will be 
given to the champions and run- 
ncrs-up in each division, and a 
coveted "Fightingest Fighter'' 
trophy will be awarded at the 
finals to the contestant in the 
tournament who put on the 
greatest fight whether he has 
emerged winner or loser. 

The only returning ringmen 
that Mankind can count on this 
season arc Alex Bobcnko and 
Angel Corrca. Bobcnko will 
punch his way in the 155 pound 
class, and Corrca enters the ring 
under the 165-pound class. 

Rubini says that he lacks power 
in the lighter weight divisions 
and needs a competent heavy- 
weight to operate during the box- 
ing campaign. He is also con- 
fronted with the problem of re- 
placing such ring masters as Ed 
Ricder, Johnny Gilmorc. Tom 
Jones, heavyweight Lcn Rodman, 
and Herb Gunther, probably one 
of Maryland's greatest light- 
heavyweights. Gunther won the 
1" 5-pound Southern Conference 
title, and Jones and Rodman 
went to the Eastern inter-colle- 
giate finals where they dropped 
close decisions. 
Open With Army 
The Liners open their season on January 
15 against a strong West Point aggrega- 
tion in Ritchie Coliseum. In addition, 
other matches arc being arranged with 
Wisconsin, Catholic University, Connecti- 
cut and the New London Coast Guard. 


V. M. I. Is Defeated 
In Final Football Game 

The Old Liners brought their l')4> foot- 
ball season to a close by defeating the 
ECeydets of Virginia Military Institute 21 
14 in a thrilling game which was held in 
Roanoke, Va., on Thanksgiving Hay. More 
than -.000 persons saw the contest which 
took the place of the annual Turkey Day 
V.P.I. - V.M.I, classic. 

Series Evened 

This game evened the long series with 
V.M.I, at 10 victories each and two ties. 
It also left the Old Liners with a perfect 
score for their two Southern Conference 
starts, as they upset Wake Forest back in 

The V.M.I, victory made up somewhat 
for the poor showing made against Vir- 
ginia, the only game in which the Old 
Liners should have done better than they 
did. The Old Liners played good hcads-up 
football and recovered two Keydet fum- 
bles inside the Old Line 10 and put to- 
gether a touchdown in the first period, a 
touchdown and safety in the second pe- 
riod and another six pointer in the final 
frame, while V.M.I, got touchdowns and 
conversions in the first and third periods. 

A 31-yard pass from Dick Tushak to 
Charles Ryan set up the first Mankind 
score on the Kcydets' seven yard line and 
Tushak tallied two plays later. The try 
for point was blocked and V.M.I, eamc 
right back to go ahead on Garvin Jones' 
37-yard pass to Mac Davis and Bryant 
Hicks' conversion. 

The Old Liners were stopped on the 
V.M.I. 14 early in the second quarter but 
went ahead after that when Frank Doray 
tackled Dick White, Keydet fullback be- 
hind the goal. A few plays later TyaO 
provided another thriller when he scooted 
64 yards to give Maryland a 1 5-7 edge after 
Doray converted. 

V.M.I, bounced back to score on three 
plays after the second half kickoff, with 
a pass from Jones to Billy Collins, the 
payoff maneuver. Hicks again converted 
to pull within one point of Maryland. The 
Keydcts thereafter made two real threats 
deep into Maryland territory, but Bob 
Troll recovered one fumble in the third 
period and Frank Daly snagged another 
early in the fourth to save the day. 
Football Auctioned 

After that the Old Liners added their 
clincher on a steady march paced by 
Ryan, Troll and Tushack, with Ryan 
scoring shortly before the final whistle. 

During the halves the football used in 
the opening kickoff, which had been au- 
tographed by Governors Darden, of Vir- 
ginia, and O'Conor, of Maryland, was auc- 
tioned off for $33,000 worth of War

Diplomas and Commissions 

(Continued from Page 3) 

Schools of the University. 

The main address was delivered by Dr. 
Robert W. Bolwcll, Chairman of the 
Graduate Council of George Washington 
University, who urged the graduates to 
think of the post-war days and the prob- 
lems which will face them as they once 
again turn to their profession and peace- 
time pursuits. He said that one of the great 
needs is to educate the patient to the ne- 
cessity for good dental methods and pro- 
cedure. In this respect. Dr. Bolwcll pointed 
out that the medical profession is far ahead 
of the dental profession in selling itself to 
the layman. "Medicine has dramatized the 
average person's fear of sickness, disease, 
and premature death,'' he said.

college stars to bolster their line ups.
